The Housing Act 2004 introduced a new
mandatory licensing system for certain types of Houses in Multiple
Occupation. Following the consultation by central government in
late 2015 the Statutory Instrument 2018 No 221 was issued. From 1st
October 2018 the scope of licenses has been increased to include
all Houses in Multiple Occupation occupied by 5 or more people in 2
or more households. This paper sets out how South Holland District
Council meets the requirements of the new legislation.
